    Granted, before I even had my own house, I learned from everyone to NOT hide "real" eggs. But here's our tip; count the number of eggs you hide so that you know how many are missing at the end of the hunt!

    One thing we do year after year when having Easter at my Aunt's house is we take a photo of all of us on her little, decorative bridge in her garden. Some years, we're freezing, while in other years it's beautiful outside. No matter the weather, we always try to get our photo each year!

    Our family Easter (Resurrection Day) tradition is always church with all the family and then brunch. After then is the big easter egg hunt. Indoors if it's too cold. We hide 50-75 eggs for the young and the teens. A lot of the eggs have money as well as candy. It's just great to see everyones happy faces just having a great time and enjoying being together. And yes as Jackie said always count the eggs. One year my sister found one egg one month later as she was planting flowers. Enjoy and be blessed!

    Every Easter my family has a tradition of hiding Easter eggs after our Easter lunch. The eggs contain candy and toys. I always put money in one egg as the big prize egg. The kids have a blast looking for the prize egg and just seeing what's in each egg. We also color eggs and open Easter baskets that are filled with goodies.

    I have long loved to bake homemade bread, and many years ago found a recipe for Easter doves. The recipe is not difficult, and forming the small balls of dough into dove shapes is very easy. Slivered almonds are inserted just before baking to give the look of a beak. The doves have a slight honey butter glaze, and are a bit sweet. For the past 10 or 15 years I have made these doves on Easter weekend and given them to neighbors or friends. One year, I made several batches and had them delivered to the local women's shelter. They are my tradition, and my gesture of spreading the peace and promise of Easter.

    I have yet to make the Italian Easter Egg bread but have made a ricotta filled "easter Pizza". I usually make a lot of treats for the easter kids table. HEre is a direct link to some no bake ones: most include chocolate discs, and chocolate. http://www.stayingclosetohome.com/2012/03/oreo-chicks-and-other-easter-treats.html

    Even though my "kids" are older or grown, I still enjoy doing Easter baskets for them with a small something special with each one in mind. Together, we dye eggs and make "tomb" rolls to remind us of Christ's empty tomb.

    Oh my family loves Easter! We all go to church and then come home to Easter basket searches. Even for the adults. :)

    Its tradition to have an Egg hunt for my cousins and nieces. We have an amazing time hiding tons of eggs and letting them run wild after them.. We've come to know from experience though that chocolate inside the eggs is not a good idea lol.. So we do some healthy options like goldfish and fruit snacks.
